Education Land Use Planning

We offer a wide range of Bachelor and Master level courses in Land Use Planning and contribute to several other Bachelor and Master courses in Landscape Architecture, Cultural Geography and Environmental Technology. These courses are embedded in the BSc and MSc programmes ‘Landscape Architecture and Planning’ (BLP and MLP) and the MSc programme ‘Urban Environmental Management’ (MUE). The courses may also be relevant for students in other Wageningen study programmes or exchange students from other universities. All Master courses are taught in English.

Bachelor studios

Studios are an important part of our Bachelor and Master courses. A final planning studio concludes each academic year of the Bachelor programme Landscape Architecture and Planning. In these studios the students are confronted with a planning task taken from planning practice, with an actual commissioner and stakeholders from a study area. The results of each studio are presented at location to the commissioner and stakeholders, and include oral presentations, posters and management reports. Some examples of results from last academic year are shown below.
